JENNIFER LOPEZ’S LACK OF SINGING ABILITY EXPOSED

I’ve said for years that when it comes to Jennifer Lopez it has nearly always been “style over substance”. The only thing she excelled at was dancing. Anyway a sound engineer has released audio of Jennifer attempting to sing a cover of Barbara Streisand’s Enough Is Enough, during a studio session.
